A comment on the Stihl Warranty problem.

The uploads were working on Friday, then with no changes to Biscount they were broken on Monday.  

There is a new drop down short-cut to export your warranties!

10.3006 Well Our advice is do not try to upload Stihl Warranty registrations until Stihl Germany have finished testing!  If you have a Unit that has failed and needs warranty work then we regret that you should go online and manually register the warranty and then submit the claim.  We will keep you informed as the situation develops.  (This update also contains a few other fixes things and some new PDF imports!)

We thought the Stihl Warranty upload wass fixed after many late nights between Christmas and New Year, also the tools to export any old Stihl Warranty Registrations you may have are included - a number of improved traps to make the program run smoother.  Best wishes for the New Year to you all.  (And sorry for the delays!)
